Sun Stone

This rare gem is one of the most powerful gems on Eternity. In its found state, it resonates with arcane fire, and is warm to the touch. Fairly early in Eternity's history, wizards have used this gem for all things fire. However, being one of the most powerful casting materials, it is also one of the hardest to siphon. Siphoning is the process in which a caster uses a Theosite focusing item such as a wand, or staff to pull the arcane energy out of the casting material. Some such energies are pre-focused into a particular element. In this case, it is pre-focused into fire. The fire it can create knows no limits, as this is the only casting material that allows you to create more fire even after the gem has been absorbed by the spell. To do this, one must continuously focus on the spell.

like how much could it get you

One Theosite coin is equal to 3 USD (U.S. Dollars) Basically, if they were on earth, one would buy you a couple Hershey bars. However, if the coin glows in your hand, it doubles its worth. Obviously, the price measurement I use is if the coin does not glow in the buyer's hand.

That seems reasonable seeing as what it can do.
